Frederick Douglass was a former slave who escaped slavery and became an educated

Frederick Douglass was a former slave who escaped slavery and became an educated, articulate, outspoken crusader against slavery. After writing a best-selling book about his experiences he became a prominent speaker on the lecture circuit in the North and abroad and was often invited to speak at various political or community events generally hosted by white reform groups. Read Douglass’s “What to the Slave Is the Fourth of July? speech and in the reply-box:briefly explain the essence of Douglass’s speech (what it was basically about, or what his main point was)
offer two or three quotes you believe to be most powerful, most telling, or had the most impact (a few words or a sentence per quote, but not a paragraph)
choose three adjectives you think best capture the essence of the speech and/or his tone
After I will send you two other student comments you will need to respond. I need the initial post by tomorrow and the responses by the following day.
Requirements: as much needed to answer the questions
